"Display name publicly as" doesn't (1 post)

    If I have a user called "user1" and set "Display name publicly as" "foobar", I do see "foobar" as the author of the posts, but if I click on it, the url is http://mysite.com/author/user1/, which reveals the real username. I'm looking for a way to keep that "user1" invisible from outside, to make life (just a little more) difficult to bots and the like trying to guess usernames.

    Is there a way to do this?
